This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Tuesday, June 28. We'll get another sub 90s day Tuesday before it warms back up in the middle of the week. According to the National Weather Service it will be sunny for much of the day in the Cedar Rapids area with a high near 87 degrees. On Tuesday night after 4 p.m. there will be a 20 percent chance of showers up until around 7 p.m. Then Tuesday night it will be mostly clear, with a low around 63 degrees. The Iowa City Church on American Legion Road is searching for a place to hold services after an early Saturday morning fire “fully engulfed” the building “in flames and smoke”  before it was declared a total loss. The cause of the fire is unknown, the Johnson County Sheriff's Office said Monday. “It is standard practice for the (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) to investigate a fire involving a church and the primary focus at this point is to determine the cause.” The Johnson County Joint Emergency Communications Center received a call at 4:22 a.m. Saturday about a structure fire at 4643 American Legion Road. West Branch Fire Department and https://www.facebook.com/IowaCityPublicSafety/posts/pfbid02ChAVQWk6wR3xoktc8GD1BmmudFZbU87JrLo8twrTo3QsyuZ2GTfgGb5ixQF2XH2el (Iowa City Fire Department) responded to the fire on the east side near Iowa City, as did the Iowa City Police Department and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office. The fire was in West Branch's jurisdiction. Fire crews extinguished the fire after several hours due to the size of the building and bad weather in the area, the Sheriff's Office said. The state of Iowa will invest in the development of a “Field of Dreams” television series, new trail construction and new Des Moines lakefront amenities with a tourism development program funded by federal dollars. Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Economic Development Authority on Monday announced $16.5 million in grant money awarded to four projects in the first round of funding through Destination Iowa, a $100 million program supported by the federal American Rescue Plan act. The two biggest allotments of this chunk of funding were $6 million to Universal Television for the development of a “Field of Dreams” television series, and $7 million to the Siouxland Regional Trail System to develop 100 miles of continuous trail projects connecting Sioux City, Le Mars, Hinton, Merrill and Sergeant Bluff.  In May the city of Cedar Rapids decided they would seek $27 million in funds from the program for a project to transform the greenway along the Cedar River and to boost outdoor recreational amenities. Meanwhile, Marion is seeking over $3.5 million in funding toward two major projects that will contribute to the city's goal of making Marion a regional destination. Marion is seeking funding for the Uptown Central Plaza project as well as the final phase of the long-awaited CeMar Trail through the Destination Iowa Grant process. The total cost of the two projects is just over $9 million.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Saturday, June 25, and Sunday, June 26. Showers that began in the early morning hours Saturday should end by around 1 p.m. And, in its wake, some nice cooler air will arrive. According to the National Weather Service, there will be a high of 89 degrees with partly cloudy skies in the Cedar Rapids area after the rain ceases. The low should be around 63 degrees. Then, on Sunday, the high will be a very pleasant 77 degrees with sunny skies. There should be a bit of a breeze at 10 to 15 mph. Then Sunday night it will be mostly clear, with a low near 54 degrees. Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that 50 years ago established the fundamental right to abortion, Iowa lawmakers are free to dramatically reduce or outlaw the procedure in the state. The reversal of the 1973 case puts the power back into the states' hands to decide the future of abortion access for its residents, meaning the ruling's impact will vary state to state In Iowa — where Republican leadership has attempted for years to restrict abortion — access to the procedure is likely at risk. Iowa Republicans, including Gov. Kim Reynolds, heralded the ruling and vowed to continue to protect the unborn. No restrictions went into effect in Iowa with the court ruling, and abortion remains legal in the state up until 20 weeks. Planned Parenthood clinics across Iowa and the Emma Goldman Clinic in Iowa City remain open and patient care continues. Reynolds and legislative leaders did not respond to messages Friday as to whether they would call a special session of the Iowa Legislature to take up a new abortion law. According to the https://news.gallup.com/poll/321143/americans-stand-abortion.aspx (latest Gallup Poll), more than eight in 10 Americans believe abortion should be legal to some degree, and a majority did not want Roe v. Wade overturned. At the same time, the country remains far from unified on the extent to which abortion should be legal, according to Gallup. Meanwhile protests were held against the decision across the nation, including several Iowa cities. In Cedar Rapids a truck collided with a woman who had been protesting, leading to the woman heading to the hospital for evaluation. A police statement said the incident happened at 7:17 p.m. near the U.S. Courthouse near Eighth Avenue and Second Street SE in downtown Cedar Rapids. About 200 protesters had gathered there. While no arrests were announced, Cedar Rapids Police said they were scouring the area for surveillance video cameras that may have captured the incident.  While police in a news release described the collision only by saying “contact was made between a vehicle and one of the pedestrians,” some of those who were at the protest said the driver of the truck deliberately hit the protesters.

Welcome to the weekend. This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19. This weekend will feature a dip into some slightly cooler weather, and then a return of the heat that will turn super hot again on Monday. According to the National Weather Service, on Saturday it will be sunny in the Cedar Rapids area with a high near 83 degrees. The low will drop to 58 degrees Saturday night with clear skies. Then on Sunday it will be sunny, with a high near 90 degrees and the low will also pop up to 67 degrees. The wind will remain mostly light most days, hovering at 5 to 10 mph with wind gusts as high as 20 mph. The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday cleared the way for lawmakers to severely limit or ban abortion in the state, reversing a decision by the court just four years ago that guaranteed the right to abortion under the Iowa Constitution. According to the Associated Press, the court, now composed almost entirely of Republican appointees, concluded that a less conservative court wrongly decided abortion is among the fundamental privacy rights guaranteed by the Iowa Constitution and federal law. Friday's ruling comes amid expectations that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide, which would turn the decision to restrict abortion back to the states. If that happens, Iowa lawmakers could ban abortion without completing the lengthy process of amending the state constitution. The Iowa decision stemmed from a lawsuit filed by abortion providers who challenged a 2020 law that required a 24-hour waiting period before a woman can get an abortion, so that waiting period requirement would now go into effect. There will be no casino in Cedar Rapids for at least two years after Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law Friday a provision that places a moratorium on new casino licenses. An amendment to a larger gambling bill means regulators cannot issue any new licenses in Iowa — including plans for a https://www.thegazette.com/local-government/cedar-rapids-casino-plans-envision-250-million-cedar-crossing-entertainment-complex-at-old-coope/ (potential $250 million, 160,000 square-foot entertainment and cultural arts complex) at the site of now-demolished Cooper's Mill near downtown Cedar Rapids — until June 2024. Citing “gambling fatigue,” the Republican-led Iowa Legislature this year https://www.thegazette.com/state-government/iowa-lawmakers-propose-2-year-moratorium-on-new-casinos/ (approved the two-year moratorium on new casinos), essentially taking action on a matter that traditionally has been conducted by the state's Racing and Gaming Commission. The new law jeopardizes Cedar Rapids' third try for a casino. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission previously denied a gaming license to Linn County in 2014 and 2017, both times citing studies showing it would “cannibalize” revenues from other casinos, particularly Riverside Casino & Golf Course in Washington County. Cedar Rapids casino backers were hopeful the current commission would be receptive to a Linn County casino, as previous opponents had cycled off the panel. Cedar Rapids-based Kirkwood Community College has announced plans to close two of its eight regional and county centers due to declining enrollment and a “significant decrease” in use of the locations. The college's 28-year-old Tippie-Mansfield Center in Belle Plaine and its 31-year-old Cedar County Center in Tipton will permanently close June 30, according to a Kirkwood news release. The closures will reduce Kirkwood's Eastern Iowa locations from 14 to 12 and eliminate its physical presence in Cedar County, one of the seven counties in its service area. The announcement this week comes less than a month after Kirkwood announced plans to re-evaluate use of its 97,000-square-foot Iowa City...

Two of Iowa football's greatest are on this year's college hall of fame ballot. OT Robert Gallery and Tight End Dallas Clark are among 80 players and 9 coaches nominated by the National Football Foundation. Voting concludes the end of June and we'll know who's in this years class the end of December.Both Gallery and Clark were consensus All Americans from small town Iowa. Both were highly coveted 1st round Nfl draft picks, Gallery #2 over-all by the Oakland Raiders. Clark was chosen with the 24th selection by the Indianapolis Colts. Born in Sioux Falls and growing up in Livermore in Northern, Iowa, population 380, Dallas Clark would wear his Incredible Hulk pajama's most of the day if allowed. Folks in Humboldt county had no idea then that Clark would grow into the Nfl's version of the short tempered Dr. Bruce Banner. Clark played a mad blocker and pass catcher at Iowa for a couple years and then for 11 seasons as QB Payton Manning's main target, winning a Super Bowl along the way. While Dallas Clark loved Marvel comics super hero's he settled for a Rudy Ruettiger role. Rudy was turned down three times by Notre Dame before he was allowed to walk on, Dallas Clark arrived in Iowa City in 1999 wide eyed and with out a scholarship offer but determined to work his way into a Hawkeye uniform. The rest is material that books and movies are made of. Dallas Clark joins us on this week's Fight for Iowa podcast.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

They met in Iowa City Iowa where they flew together, Mariah as an RN, Byron as a helicopter pilot flying Air Medical rescue missions, and lifting people up and away from healthcare challenges. After leaving Iowa City in 2003 they moved to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, to the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Byron flew helicopter tours around the island, and Mariah worked as a nurse, both once again elevating people who looked to them for their unique ability to raise others up. It was on Kauai that they sensed the need for better, stronger connection to the spiritual and transcendent energy that surrounds us all, what the Hawaiian people refer to as mana, the spiritual life force. The idea behind Journey Well, You Are More Than Enough came to them on Kauai, as they felt the majestic power of the ocean, the rhythmic action of booming waves, the soothing serenity of the Hawaiian breeze, and the strangely affirming connection we all feel with the natural environment. It all elicited the idea for Journey Well, You Are More Than Enough, the transcendent feeling they found on that little island so far removed from the harsh messages heard and seen elsewhere. They left Kauai in 2006 to care for Byron's dying father, once again raising others up, this time seeing a parent lift off for the final time. From there, they left the US, moving first to Panama, then to Medellin Colombia where they lived for three wonderful years. Feeling their mandate to elevate once more, when the pandemic arrived in 2020 they left Colombia, moving back to Iowa to be with Mariah's then 89-year-old mother. Mariah and Byron believe the time is ripe for a renewal of higher purpose, elevated dialogue, focus on basic human values such as self-worth, dignity, integrity, honesty, and candor, but also a personal mandate to work toward a more civil society. Through their content and coaching in mindset change they believe everyone will come to realize that our thoughts create our world, and that the way we respond to each other comes with a great deal of responsibility. Everyone has unique value, and a gift they must share with all of us as we assemble this wonderful puzzle together. No one can be left behind, and once everyone is included they believe the better, brighter world we all know is waiting for us will be realized.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Tuesday, June 14. It's going to be ridiculously hot Tuesday. According to the National Weather Service it will be sunny and hot in the Cedar Rapids area with a high of 99 degrees. Heat index values with the heavy humidity will rise as high as 106. It will also be breazy, with a south wind of 10 to 15 mph increasing to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. Wind gusts could be as high as 30 mph. There will be a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms late Tuesday night, but otherwise it will be mostly clear, with a low of around 73 degrees. We have an article with a list of cool off zones in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids on the front page of theGazette.com. The Cedar Rapids school board Monday postponed a vote on an agreement for school resource officers — also known as police — in schools, with some board members voicing concern that the data presented on the program is incomplete. In a 6-1 vote, with President David Tominsky opposing, the school board agreed to meet in a work session between now and July 11 to further discuss the school resource officer contract before voting on it in their next scheduled meeting at 5:30 p.m., July 11, at the Educational Leadership and Support Center on Edgewood Rd NW. While data shows there are racial disparities in the discipline meted out against students in the district, school board members said a survey given out to gauge student and teacher opinions on the officers painted a flawed picture due to an error in the way the survey was distributed. They also were hesitant to pull the officers without proper consideration given the overall concern for school safety lately in the public. Deficiencies in the University of Iowa Children's Hospital “curtain wall system” at the center of https://www.thegazette.com/higher-education/university-of-iowa-suing-contractors-over-cracked-windows-in-childrens-hospital/ (a new lawsuit )were observed during construction, left uncorrected, and have become so prevalent that most patient windows — along with many others — pose “life safety issues” if left uncorrected. “The number and severity of the (insulated glass unit) defects are progressive, with problems continuing to manifest themselves with the passage of time,” according to the lawsuit Iowa's Board of Regents filed Friday on behalf of UI in Johnson County District Court. They noted replacing hundreds of damaged windows is the only path forward. The lawsuit has been filed against Iowa City-based Knutson Construction Services Midwest, Inc. and Cupples International, Inc., based in St. Louis. Specific proactive and reactive steps the university has taken include installing protective film and clips on hundreds of windows that should hold the glass within if the glass units break. Still the threat of falling glass is severe enough that the children's hospital playground has been closed as a precaution. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, Iowa's Republican U.S. senators, said they are waiting to see the final version of bipartisan legislation containing modest gun control proposals before stating whether they will support it. The legislation was the result of two weeks of negotiations between a bipartisan group of U.S. senators in response to recent mass shootings in the United States. But Grassley, who is up for re-election this fall, said he was “encouraged” to see the bipartisan group produce a proposal. https://www.thegazette.com/federal-government/u-s-senate-bargainers-announce-outline-of-gun-violence-agreement/ (The current proposal) would make juvenile records available during background checks whenever someone under the age of 21 buys a gun; ban convicted domestic abusers from being able to buy a gun; and send federal funding to states enacting so-called red flag laws, which attempt to temporarily take guns away from individuals who could be considered potentially violent.

Friday there will be a chance of rain in the morning and a chance of rain in the evening, with a cloudy day in the middle. The National Weather Service predicts it to be mostly cloudy with a high near 74 degrees, with the low coming in at around 56 degrees. The chance for rain will top out at 50 percent. The committee investigating the violent rioters that stormed the nation's capitol building on January 6, 2021 made the case both that the incident should not be downplayed and began their case connecting it to then President Donald Trump and his associates. The first of several hearings was held on primetime television Thursday night, and in a sense was designed with a television audience in mind, with the first hearing recapping the events of the day with video and the panel speaking with a capitol police officer about her experiences that day. The panel laid the blame firmly on Donald Trump Thursday night, saying the assault was hardly spontaneous but an “attempted coup” and a direct result of the defeated president's effort to overturn the 2020 election. The riot left more than 100 police officers injured, many beaten and bloodied, as the crowd of pro-Trump rioters, some armed with pipes, bats and bear spray, charged into the Capitol. At least nine people who were there died during and after the rioting, including a woman who was shot and killed by police. The next hearing will be at 9 a.m. on Monday. Iowa's first medical marijuana manufacturer and distributor is changing its name, planning a $10 million expansion in Iowa and moving into other states where it can legally sell recreational pot. MedPharm Iowa will become the much less medical sounding, Bud & Mary's Cannabis Co., showing a shift in the company's focus from just medical marijuana allowed in Iowa to recreational marijuana products allowed in some other states. Bud & Mary's will break ground next week on a $10 million expansion of the Des Moines manufacturing facility to “allow for a 3x increase in cannabis production for the Iowa program in order to meet increasing patient needs.” The company will continue to make and sell the same products, including Batch cannabis vapes, which, since their release in March, “are on track to be Iowa's most popular medical cannabis product in 2022,” a company news release states. Matt Gatens, a productive and popular basketball player when he was at Iowa and a former high school basketball star in Iowa City, has been hired as an assistant coach to Fran McCaffery's Hawkeyes men's basketball staff. Gatens replaces Kirk Speraw, who announced his retirement from coaching last month. Gatens was a four-year starter for the Hawkeyes from 2009-12. His final two seasons were McCaffery's first two as Iowa's head coach, while his first two are part of a Hawkeye basketball era that fans try to actively forget.  Gatens was a two-time All-Big Ten selection, two-time team captain, two-time academic all-conference honoree, and recipient of the 2012 Chris Street Award.

Get your copy of the 10-Step Effective Prospecting Process here If you're looking for help to bring in new qualified leads to set up weekly meetings, learn more here. Excerpts from this conversation with Austin McCulloh 02:43 LinkedIn is LinkedIn is the social media of business, or that's how we think of it. And, and a lot of us are on there. And I keep hearing from people saying, well, I've tried prospecting on LinkedIn, but it doesn't work. What do you say to that?   03:03 You want the honest response? I want the truth, the brutal truth. I'm saying they don't work. I'm saying they're not doing it the right way. I mean, that's just the raw truth. And the reason why I'm laughing and I say it, and do I, whoever the listener is, if they're not having success, why they should be optimistic is because they're right now listening to somebody who is, has done it more than 99.9% of the world. I've failed on it, I've done well on it. So the first thing I'll say is, they probably don't have a process. So they don't know who they're reaching out to. If you don't know who you're reaching out to, you don't know what to say to them, you don't know how to engage in conversation. So really, they don't have the components all lined up. And then another key point, and we're going to come back to all these, but they're too focused on themselves, trying to push what they have to offer excited about what they have to offer. And that's not what resonates with your prospects, especially when they're complete strangers. ----- 16:57 It's okay to be direct in terms of asking questions, if you're really trying to solve a pain point for somebody, because if it's a real pain, and you're trying to solve it, trying to help them with something.   17:08 But don't have the intention to go close them right away. Kind of like what you talked about George have the intention of being curious, being kind of like a researcher, ask the open ended questions, get a sense to see if it's good for them. And then if anything, your intention should be to set a meeting to learn more, not close business. So focus on the meeting, not on the client yet. ----- 18:02 Somebody either accepts it, or they don't accept the connection request. if they don't accept it, never gonna communicate with them not in contact with them. I f they accept it, and they reply, then the conversation is ongoing. If they accept it, and they don't reply to the first message, I have it set that 92 minutes later, another follow up message will be sent. And then about two days and 22 minutes later, another one is sent, I have about three total follow up messages. So four total that go out, there's the connection request and the message that goes along with it, three follow ups. Now sometimes you get some people who never end up, they'll accept it, but they never respond to any of those four messages. And then you get other people who respond to the first, the second, the third or the fourth, you get where I'm coming from. So that's that once somebody replies, ----- 32:00 Just take another look at it take another go. Great question. If you have not had success with prospecting online, or even if you haven't done it before, so regardless, you haven't had success because he did it or you've never done, take 30 minutes to an hour before you even start or before you restart and put together an actual plan. Now obviously, working with somebody who has done it before can can critique your plan can help you a lot with it. But if you know who you're reaching out to, you already have a few scripts put together already know what questions you want to ask and you know what you want your end result to be, it's all going to work much better. And then also know what you want to measure for it too. So have expectations of if I'm doing so many contacts, I want to see how many accepted connection requests I get, how many responses I get, because then you can tell if it was a success or failure or and also meeting set as well. So that's what I'd have to say I know it's a lot of different variables, but a lot of people are just kind of shooting from the hip. And when you have a plan to follow. You're much more likely to get the results that you want. ----- ----more---- Your Intended Message is the podcast about how you can boost your career and business success by honing your communication skills.

Jack got his start in Iowa City working at the legendary China Garden Restaurant, where he learned about amazing service, the importance of attention to detail, and leading by example. Jack, also a natural artist, used his ability to land himself in NYC where he was mentored by world-famous artist, Marilyn Minter. Minter took a likely to Jack, and as a result, jack got more opportunities than most in the world of art, but he was turned away by the art industry by its politics, however, this experience left a huge influence on his life. Jack went on to work in the FOH in many fine-dining restaurants throughout the US including NYC, Utah, and Texas before doing 4 years with the Cheesecake Factory where he learned a ton of systems and culture. In 1998 the Discussion to open Atlas in Iowa City, IA started and by 2000 the restaurant was open. Atlas had a successful 17-year run under Jack's ownership before he sold the restaurant to Matt Swift and Ben Smart. During that time Jack also opened Jimmy Jack's Rib Shack and Basta Italian Restaurant. He also took Jimmy Jack's popular BBQ sauces nationwide with Amazon, and throughout the region in 150 local retailers.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Wednesday, June 8. You could wake up to rainy skies Wednesday, but it won't last all day. According to the National Weather Service the majority of the rain in the Cedar Rapids area should move out of the area by 1 p.m. After that it will be mostly sunny, with a high of 73 degrees. The low will be 53 degrees Wednesday night with mostly clear skies. It was election night Tuesday and most races went as expected in Iowa, but there was a bit of a surprise in the U.S. Senate race.  Mike Franken, a U.S. Navy veteran from Sioux City, earned the Democratic nomination Tuesday in Iowa's U.S. Senate campaign, handily beating former U.S. Rep. Abby Finkenauer of Cedar Rapids by 15 percentage points. Franken, who was runner-up in the 2020 Democratic primary for another Iowa U.S. Senate seat, made his second attempt count. Finkenauer had been viewed as a bit of a favorite to win the race after she announced due to name recognition and ties to the national party. With his victory, Franken earned the right to challenge longtime Republican U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley in this fall's Nov. 8 general election. Grassley, as expected, easily survived his own primary challenge Tuesday. But that, of course, wasn't the only race Tuesday night. For more, check out our complete election night coverage on thegazette.com. An Iowa City man who helped organize Black Lives Matter events pleaded guilty Tuesday to lesser charges after injuring police officers by shining laser light beams in their eyes during 2020 protests in Iowa City. Matthew D.C. Bruce, 26, originally charged with six felony counts of assault on persons of certain occupations causing bodily injury, pleaded to two counts of assault causing bodily injury, which are serious misdemeanors, and three counts of assault, which are simple misdemeanors. Johnson County Attorney Janet Lyness said the prosecution will ask a judge to sentence Bruce to 180 days in jail but suspend 150 days, leaving him with 30 days to serve. Bruce was identified in multiple news reports as an organizer of the Des Moines Black Liberation Movement, a group that had organized protests in Des Moines following the death of George Floyd, 46, who was killed while in custody by former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin. The Uptown Marion Market will use the new Seventh Avenue festival street when it returns on Saturday. The market, which takes place one Saturday a month over the course of the summer, runs from 8 a.m. to noon. This year, over 35 local vendors will be selling fresh produce, wine, honey, baked goods and other artisan items. Marion streetscape work and other construction continues this summer, all around the Uptown area, but the market will still be accessible.

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for election day, Tuesday, June 7. It'll be mostly sunny Tuesday with a high near 78 degrees. According to the National Weather Service, on Tuesday night there will be a small chance for rain, but the highest chance for showers and potentially a thunderstorm will be after 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Iowa City police released officer body camera and squad car video clips Monday it says shed more light on a public intoxication arrest last week that remains under review. The arrest late Friday of Daria Brown, 22, on S. Clinton Street was partially captured on a video circulating on social media. That video shows the arrest from one angle as a combative Brown is put into custody in the back seat of a police vehicle as an officer punches her. Video released by the department shows the arrest from other angles, including one that shows Brown trying to grab a Taser off of an officer's belt as he places her in the vehicle. Brown faces one count of public intoxication, two counts of interference with official acts, four counts of assaults on persons in certain occupations and one count of disarming a police officer. The city said the arrest remains under review in accordance with its use of force policy. Iowa athletics made $3 million from alcohol sales after sales tax in 2021-22 — thehttps://www.thegazette.com/hawkeye-football/beer-in-kinnick-a-brew-haha-or-something-less/ ( first year of fully selling alcohol at games —) according to documents obtained by The Gazette via a public records request. Most of the revenue after sales tax — $2.4 million of the $3 million — came from football games or the spring open practice at Kinnick Stadium. Three football games — Sept. 4 against Indiana, Oct. 9 against Penn State and Oct. 16 against Purdue — had more football sales than any sport had in its entire season. Iowa earned $338,839 in revenue after sales tax from men's basketball games, $180,458 from wrestling matches and $77,415 from women's basketball games. Before 2021, alcohol was only available in suites and premium seating areas. UnityPoint Health-St. Luke's Hospital has announced a $25 million expansion of its heart and vascular center, a move to help providers meet a growing patient demand for more specialized and minimally invasive services, officials say. Construction is expected to begin sometime this summer on the Cedar Rapids hospital's Nassif Heart Center. The project, which will take place over the next two years, will consolidate cardiac and vascular care into the center and will expand existing services. The move will help alleviate space constraints, and help providers meet the growing demand for services locally Patient demand for cardiovascular services has been growing at St. Luke's and other health systems in recent years, and it's not solely driven by the growing senior population in Iowa. Advancements in medical technology have opened the door to a greater number of patients becoming candidates for surgery.
